no delay at all. >> thanks for watching the eyewitness news t >> thanks for watching the eyewitness news t good morning to our viewers in the west. it is friday, june 22, twrfl. 2012. welcome to studio 27. i'm charlie rose. gayle king is off today. jerry sandusky's fate is in the hands of a jury, but it's a bombshell allegation they didn't get to hear that is making news this morning. plus, stocks tanked and major banks get downgraded. should you be worried about wall street's bad day? i'm erica hill. details of the secret summit between mitt romney and dozens of major donors. plus, the bullied bus monitor. jim axelrod is there when the father of a bully comes to apologize. but first, as we do every morning, we begin with a look at today's "eye opener," your world
7:01 am
in 90 seconds. how are you doing? >> a jury deliberates jerry sandusky's future as new allegations surface from his past. >> a bombshell. this time it is jerry sandusky's own adopted son. >> 33-year-old matt sandusky claims he was too a victim of abuse. >> and he was ready to testify at his trial. >> i knew matt at the beginning of the trial was for him. at end of the trial was against him. that doesn't say a whole lot to his emotional stability. >> mitt romney tried to convince latino leaders. >> i'm going to address the problem of illegal immigration in a civil and resolute manner. >> under political views, it says it's complicated. >> stocks posted their worst day in three weeks thursday. moody's credit rating agency after a four-month review -- >> lowered the credit rating of 15 of the world's biggest banks, including america's top five.
7:02 am
>> at least 18 people were killed in a 12-hour standoff. >> taliban attack on a hotel in kabul. >> the miami heat are once again nba champions. >> this is a dream come true for me. >> it's about damn time. >> a man posing as an art buff makes off with a salvador dalli painting worth $15 million. >> are you having fun here? >> not really. too much [ bleep ] man. >> all that -- >> you go to college, it's chicks ahoy. >> hosni mubarak. his lawyer now says his condition is stable. >> he's in a bed wearing sunglasses. maybe he died weeks ago and the egyptian military is just pulling a "weekend at hosni's" thing. >> it is still sweltering after two days of record-shattering heat. >> it's hot. why not get rid of the sleeves? >> on "cbs this morning." >> they are so desperate for air conditioning that someone was
7:03 am
spotted going to a theater to see "rock of ages." [ laughter ] welcome to "cbs this morning." the jury in the jerry sandusky trial goes back to work this morning after its first day of deliberations ran late into the night. the sequestered panel does not know about an explosive new allegation by one of sandusky's sons. >> according to his lawyers, matt sandusky says he is a victim of abuse by his adopted father. armen keteyian is outside of the courthouse this morning. what a bombshell that was yesterday. >> reporter: good morning. and good morning to our viewers across the west. the big news, matt sandusky, the youngest adopted child of jerry and dottie sandusky, late last week contacted the prosecution to allege that he too had been abused.
7:04 am
but sandusky never took the stand in his own defense. his voice fueled with passion, defense attorney joe amendola argued that sandusky himself was the victim, painted as a monster by accusers, targeted by alleged victims motivated by money, dishonest police investigators, the media, and a commonwealth desperate to take down a famous football coach. the system decided mr. sandusky was guilty, he said, and the system set out to convict him. over 72 emotional minutes, amendola took what he saw as cracks in the case, inconsisten inconsistencies, lack of physical evidence, no allegations of abuse before 1998, and built a mosaic of reasonable doubt. folks, it doesn't add up. it makes no sense, he said. all of a sudden, out of the blue, in his mid 50s, jerry sandusky decides to become a pedophile? does that make any sense to anybody? in his closing, lead prosecutor joseph mcgettigan dismissed
7:05 am
amendola's construction as nothing more than conspiracy theory. he then methodically reviewed the testimony of eight alleged victims, detailing what he called a litany of depravity, a full spectrum of predatory pedophile behavior. amendola ended his closing with a poem by mother theresa, one he said sandusky had asked him to read. it included the line, what you spend your life building, someone could destroy overnight. but you keep building. in his closing, mcgettigan walked directly towards sandusky, pointing as he said, i feel like i have 10 pieces of 10 souls in my body, childhoods ravaged, memories destroyed, insen raigncinerated by this pe. he was standing directly behind the defendant when he left the jury with these final words. give him the justice he deserves. a jury of seven women and five men deliberated for about 7 1/2 hours yesterday before retiring for the night around 9:45 p.m. they are deliberating now inside
7:06 am
courtroom number two, and they will continue to do so until they reach a decision. charlie, erica? >> armen, thanks. cbs news legal analyst jack ford has been following this case since the beginning. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what do you make of the latest twist of the story with matt sandusky? >> what's interesting about it, obviously, it's a compelling story. but just because matt sandusky said he was prepared to testify doesn't mean that the court would have allowed him to testify. that might sound strange to people but here's why. generally speaking, remember, he's not part of this indictment. he is not part of the charges against jerry sandusky. generally speaking, the law doesn't allow testimony about other bad acts to come into a case if it's not part of the indictment and the charges. that might sound strange to people because the inclination is well, if he did something wrong before, chances are he did something wrong this time. but the law says you can't decide a case that way. it has to be decided on the facts of this case, not whether you're a good guy or a bad guy. there's some exceptions to that. one of them is, if this other bad acts can show a pattern of
7:07 am
conduct here. and i'm sure that's what the prosecution would have argued. pattern of conduct. but i'm certain the defense would have said, and i think the judge might have listened very carefully, the judge has to do a balancing test, decide is the probative value, does it help to prove whether he is guilty or not, outweighed by the prejudicial impact of this. and i'm sure the defense would say, there can't be anything more prejudicial than at the end of the trial, surprise to everybody, the adopted son of the defendant comes in and says, now i want to testify that i was abused. my guess is that the judge would have done that balancing test and said, i'm not so sure that i can allow this to come in. now, there's one other exception. this is like a law school final exam for you two. i'm going to collect your papers after this and we'll check the grade. >> good thing charlie is a lawyer. >> one other way it can get in, jerry sandusky can get on the stand and says, not only did i not abuse these people, i never abused anybody before in my life. then the judge might have
7:08 am
allowed matt sandusky to say, yes, he abused me. but you could only use it for that. >> 48 counts. how quickly could we see a verdict? >> you don't know. these people will take a lot of time. the case went quickly, but you have to believe they'll take a lot of time. they realize it's a high profile case and a lot of people are watching. you never know how long it will take a jury to deliberate. >> jack ford, nice to see you again. this looks to be the last day of a record-breaking heat wave here in the east coast. a lot of people happy to hear that. more heat warnings and advisories this morning from delaware to new jersey. washington, philadelphia, new york, and boston expected to see high temperatures again today. today could be in the 90s. a cold front is forecast to finally bring a little relief by the weekend. wall street opened higher this morning one day after moody's investors service lowered the credit rating of 15 major banks. citigroup and bank of america were downgraded to just two steps above junk status. the downgrade announced after
7:09 am
wall street's worse loss in three weeks. the dow jones industrials fell 250 points or 2% on thursday. >> with us now is the author of "money and power: how goldman sachs came to rule the world." what do you make of the downgrade? >> i may be one of the only people in america who read through the downgrade document. what they are saying is that wall street is still a risky place. any big bank that is in the business of capital markets making markets for stocks and bonds and underwriting derivatives and securities is still at a risk for failing. and in this document, they list like 25 famous wall street firms that have gone out of business in the last 25 years. and basically saying, this could happen again. to which i say, hey, thanks for that. how about five years ago it would have been nice for you to tell me that. some people on wall street are saying, you're too in the rearview mirror. how about going forward? we have more capital now than we have ever had as a result of
7:10 am
this crisis. we have been forced to have more capital. we are a safer business than we used to be. but moody's is saying i'm not so sure. look what happened to jp morgan losing $2 billion unexpectedly. look at mf global. so wall street is still a risky place. >> so somebody at home watching this and listening to this and sees the story in today's paper, do they say perhaps i should be worried because i thought we were past what happened in 2008 but maybe there's more risk than i imagined? >> well, the question is, do they want to be a creditor of a wall street firm. i think for the person at home, you know, this is going to trickle down slowly but surely unfortunately. as everything does. because it's going to cost more for these firms to do business. their cost of capital is going up. their cost of doing business is going up. and if they make loans to small businesses, then that's going to cost those businesses more because they are going to try to recoup their capital costs by loaning out their money to new firms. >> i'm sorry.
7:11 am
finish your thought. >> but basically, most people at home won't notice any change by this. >> one thing people probably have been noticing, the price of gas has dropped. oil is at a very low level. if we end on a bright note here, can we expect gas prices to drop throughout the summer? >> absolutely. you know, as we know, it's big -- it's tracked very quickly on the way up. the prices at the pump seem to go up instantly. but on the way down, it's much slower. so it will happen. and that forecast is by the fall prices will come back. it should be much faster. oil companies are really raking it in now as a result of this. >> it would be nice if it was faster. thank you. mitt romney is hosting dozens of republican heavy hitters this weekend for a meeting of the minds. as dan crawford reports, they are focusing on how to win the white house. good morning. >> good morning to everyone out west. romney gave first of all this major speech yesterday on immigration. he is hoping to make some inroads with hispanics, which of course is a group that tends to vote democratic. went big for president obama. but today he is going to be out your way, out west, meeting with big supporters and big time
7:12 am
donors. romney reached out thursday to a group of voters that could decide the election, telling latino officials from around the country the president isn't delivering on his old campaign promises, and they have options. >> i believe he's taking your vote for granted. you do have an alternative. >> reporter: but today, romney switches gears as he heads to park city, utah, for a meeting with top republican leaders and donors. the three-day retreat at the exclusive deer valley resort includes a who's who of powerful republican figures like 2008 republican nominee john mccain, former bush adviser karl rove, and former secretary of state condoleezza rice. also expected are top republican donors, including casino developer sheldon addleson and home depot co-founder ken langeom. >> the next president of the united states. >> when they meet with romney, the attendees are expected to focus on the message needed to defeat the president. the economy and next week's
7:13 am
supreme court ruling on mr. obama's health care law. a big question is how the ruling could affect the campaign and how republicans will react. >> in the coming days, i think you all know the supreme court will rule on the president's health care law. >> reporter: house speaker john boehner, not expected to attend the retreat, warned republicans on thursday not to overplay a supreme court victory. in a memo, he said, there will be no spiking of the ball. republicans are focused on the economy. we will not celebrate at a time when millions of americans remain out of work. now, what's unusual about this weekend's kind of secret summit is this access that these donors are getting to romney. of course, big time donors always have access to the candidate, and the campaign, but this is different. this is a much more organized and efficient way of just getting everybody together all at one time. charlie, erica? >> jen, thank you so much. also in washington, cbs news political director john dickerson. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what do we make of this, if
7:14 am
anything? the people who support mitt romney getting together. the money people, the policy people, condoleezza rice. it all seems transparent. or is there something i'm missing? >> well, this is the fundraisers here, the people who gave $50,000 or raised $250,000 or more. so this is a kind of -- it's kind of a mix between a shareholders meeting and a renewal of vows. they are all gathered together to see mitt romney. he'll do some stroking of them. and thank them for all the good work they've done. and it's a unity moment. so bring in all of these people who might have supported other candidates, show them how well things are going. for up and coming politicians, that's the most interesting to me. if you're governor bob mcdonald of virginia, you're getting an entree with a whole bunch of people you might need further down your career. always stay on message. that's true for karl rove and paul ryan and all the other
7:15 am
heavyweights who will also be there. >> does this say that the republican party is very united behind mitt romney? >> it says that the top very wealthy part of the republican party is it united behind him. and that's very important for fundraising. one of the purposes of this is to give all of these fundraising folks something to talk about when they go to their friends and they can say, you know, when i was talking to governor romney by the barbecue grill, he said to me that, you know, my energy ideas were brilliant. well, that gives them a talking point when they are getting money from their friends. and it makes them feel important. and that's incredibly important in terms of raising money. but also when -- if anything ever goes wrong in the campaign, they don't want to see a person quoted in the paper saying, oh, gosh, things are going wrong. that makes everyone feel loved and keep them onboard through november. >> we heard what boehner said on campaign. what about the romney campaign if it is struck down? what's the plan? >> well, governor romney has to
7:16 am
be careful here, because if the individual mandate is struck down, that might bring up a long conversation about the individual mandate in massachusetts. and which he supported then in the state. he argues that state experiments are fine and shouldn't be taken to the national level. what they want, though, is this to look like a big thumbs down on the president, and then move back to the question of jobs. >> john, thank you. this morning trayvon martin's family is reacting to newly released videotapes of george zimmerman, who shot the 17-year-old in february. and as we report, we see the suspect at the scene for the first time describing the shooting just hours after it happened. >> reporter: george zimmerman's attorney released this videotape of zimmerman taking police back to the scene of the shooting the day after he shot and killed 17-year-old trayvon martin. >> i think i was trying to push him away from me. and then he got on top of me somewhere around here.
7:17 am
and that's when i started screaming for help. >> reporter: here, zimmerman described the moments before the shooting, saying martin began to slam his head into the concrete. >> that's when my jacket moved up, and i had my firearm on my right side hip. my jacket moved up. and he saw -- i feel like he saw it. he looked at it. and he said, you're going to die tonight, [ bleep ]. and he reached for it, like i felt his arm going down to my side. and i grabbed it. and i just grabbed my firearm and i shot him. one time. >> reporter: attorney mark o'marra says he posted that tape and others on his website because he wants the public to consider all the evidence in the case. >> my fear is that people have made up their minds on anger, hatred, predispositions about things. and that hurts the process. >> reporter: another piece of evidence released, an audiotape of a police interview with zimmerman. in it, zimmerman said he was
7:18 am
afraid, but lead investigator chris sorino questioned his account. >> jumped out of the car to see where he was going? >> yes. >> that's not fear, all right? that's one of the problems i have with the whole thing. >> reporter: the attorney for the family of trayvon martin, ben crump, says those questions are significant. >> obviously, the lead detective did not believe george zimmerman. his credibility is a major issue. and you have to remember it is only his version. >> reporter: but crump says the family believes all the evidence in the case should come out. >> they want all the evidence out because they know their son. they know what type of child he was. >> reporter: zimmerman is charged with second degree murder for martin's killing. right now, he sits in jail with a bond hearing scheduled for next friday. for "cbs this morning," anna warner, sanford, florida. it is time now to show you some of the morning's headlines from around the globe.

7:32 am
>> two are ok jerks. two are rotten apples. >> reporter: in the video, klein seems to try to ignore it, though there was a lot more going on under the passive surface. didn't any part of you get angry? >> oh, yeah. there was a part of me. but it stayed in me. yeah. >> reporter: you would have liked to, huh? >> oh, yeah. i sure would have. just wiped the smirk right off their faces, you know? but you just can't do that. i didn't. >> reporter: no, that's not karen klein. >> i'm sorry. >> reporter: early last evening, one of the boy's fathers came to apologize. >> i apologize. >> reporter: and assure her his son would be punished. >> there's no excuse. >> no. >> and we're going to get to the bottom of that. but i -- it really broke my heart. and i shed a lot of tears
7:33 am
thinking about that whole thing. and i just want you to know that my family, all of us, are deeply saddened by this whole thing. and we're going to get it right. >> reporter: but listen to how she ends the conversation, alluding to the threats the boys' families have been getting. >> but you'll be ok, right? >> yeah, we'll be ok. >> reporter: you were asking him if he was going to be ok. >> sorry. >> reporter: why are you sorry? that's so generous of you. >> well, i had heard that story, you know, about phone calls and stuff. and -- >> reporter: threats against the family? >> yeah. and i don't want that. >> reporter: perhaps it's that generous nature that people around the country and around the world have been responding to. clogging her inbox with supportive emails. >> god bless you for keeping calm and showing them how decent people behave. >> reporter: and donating more than $400,000 to a webpage
7:34 am
called let's give karen the bus monitor a vacation, which is all a little confusing to her. >> they say i'm such a great person and they love me but they don't even really know me, you know? >> reporter: as for the boys, karen is relieved that what she has seen of their parents' response -- what went through your mind when you found out your kid was one of the four? >> rage. sadness. i mean, there was a lot of emotion that went on there. mostly sadness. i just felt terrible. >> reporter: but the apologies she really wants to hear are not from the parents. do you want to hear from the kids? >> oh, yeah. >> reporter: are you ready to hear from the kids? >> am i ready to hear from them? no. not face-to-face. >> reporter: it's still too raw? >> yeah.
7:35 am
yes. i would rather read it. >> reporter: perhaps the most generous thing karen klein has done is made it very clear she doesn't want to see criminal charges. in her view, perhaps some community service for the boys, maybe they shouldn't be allowed to ride the bus for a year. but she's very clear that what happened here in her mind doesn't rise to the level of being criminal. >> jim, we talked a lot about the support for her. what about the community itself, though? as i understand it, some of the boys did issue some statements. what's the community saying? >> reporter: well, let's be fair to this suburb of rochester. lots of outrage here about what happened. and certainly a lot of support for karen. while we were there, people were just walking up and saying, we're so sorry to have heard. neighbors, people who knew her, people who didn't know her. and then there's this not only in greece but outside, internationally, this sense when facebook and youtube combine, in our modern culture, not only
7:36 am
does everybody see what happened but they have a chance to respond. $450,000 to send her on vacation. karen klein is ending this week as we said much differently than she started it. >> jim, thank you. quite a story. >> unbelievable. i'm struck by how deeply this impacted her, though. not ready to meet these kids yet. >> i thought that was interesting as well. and it's also -- you know, it's sad too when you hear about things. the behavior is reprehensible. i think we can all agree on that. but when you hear about things like death threats to these families and threats online, you know, there have been a number of people who have come out and said, look, this is just as bad in many ways. you know, you don't fight fire with fire in that way. interesting the response there too. >> good to see the outpouring of support. >> almost $450,000. that will be one heck of a vacation. >> she can go around the world a couple of times. >> yes, he did. lebron james led the miami

happy morning in south happy morning in south florida, where last night lebron james led the miami heat to a 121-106 victory over oklahoma city to win the nba title. >> james says his first championship is the best feeling he's ever had. it is also a critical moment for the nba's biggest star and some say its most polarizing figure. >> james on the break. and the finish! >> thursday night, lebron james silence the critics who
7:42 am
questioned whether the nba's best player would ever win the league's most coveted trophy. as the miami heat beat oklahoma city thunder four games to one, james, the high school phenom, crowned king james before ever donning an nba jersey, made fans believe they were witnessing basketball history with each pass, with every dunk. but his story book career took a downward turn after an ill conceived television announcement to leave cleveland. >> and that's why i'm going to take my talents to south beach. >> and join two of the nba's brightest stars in miami, complete with a lavish welcome party. that drew hyper bollic anger from fans. >> absolute worst decision ever. queen james. not king james. >> but last night, nothing outside of the court mattered. the explosive swoops to the basket, the relentless rebounding, the barrage of shots by teammates. when the clock ticked down, lebron james and the miami heat were nba champions.
7:43 am
>> i dreamed about this opportunity, this moment, for a long time. my dream has become a reality now. and it's the best feeling i ever had. >> with us now, bill roden. welcome. >> thank you, thank you. >> here is "the new york times" this morning. a near decade of expectation, intense criticism and doubts, washed away. magic johnson. i think everything changes. he can now feel that you know that i am the best player in the world because i won the title. do you agree with all of this? >> yeah, pretty much so. i mean -- [ laughter ] >> well, what can you say? >> and there we go. we're all done. nice to see you. >> thank you very much. good to see you, bill. >> no. i mean, really, the guy is phenomenal. relative to what we're talking about, case closed. in our business, the only thing we kind of had to criticize was that, you know, you didn't win the big one. >> now he's won it. >> not only did he win the big
7:44 am
one, he just completely sat on everybody. >> he dominated. >> and now guess what? now we move to the olympics. now we win the gold medal. so it's just -- >> but it was the only the criticism about having not won the nba? or was it something else, because he left cleveland? >> well, you know what? there was so much. and in our generation of media and news, it's just always something. and you're right. there are people who didn't like the fact that he left cleveland. including the owner, who made a big deal out of it. there was a way he did it. you know, but he went into a partnership with espn. they both decided, you know what? that's a great idea. and it got great ratings. but then he went to miami, and they said, you know, not one, not two, not three, not five, not six, you know. and so lebron gets carried away. but i think finally what happens, and this is probably a message to this generation of young people because there is just so much stuff. that at some point in time, you have to focus and lock in. and you've got to deal with substance.
7:45 am
at some point, it can't all just be style. at some point, you've got to deal with substance. and if you're in sports, sometimes, you've got to win. >> at the end of the day, you've got to have more points than they did. >> right. and you better not -- if he was lost -- if he would not have gotten this done, it would have been one of the great falls in american sports history. >> how does this change him now, though? yes, he's got the title, and so he's got these bragging rights now. but does it change him at all as a player, you think? and the way he approaches this and the way he stands up there with his team? >> yeah. that's a great question. but he's always been a team person. hi he's always been a team person. and as a player, i think he got back -- you know, last year, the big criticism was that he didn't have an inside game. and to his credit, you know, he spent the summer with hakim working on his post game. and particularly a lot of young players -- >> no, no, go ahead. >> a lot of young players don't do that.
7:46 am

8:01 am
mystery erin moriarity reveals more evidence in shannan gilbert's death. >> you know he's still out there. he could be killing someone as we speak. >> sherre gilbert's sister, shannan, an escort on a call, went missing from a gated community just three miles from the dumping ground of the long island serial killer in may of 2010. it was the search for shannan that led to the four victims, young women like shannan, all linked to the sex trade. >> this is the american version of jack the ripper. that's the kind of case that this is. >> reporter: on the last night of her life shannan made a 911 call pleading for help, ran from her client's home, and disappeared into the night. olice finally found her body 18 months later in a nearby marsh. >> we have located a set of skeletal remains. >> reporter: richard dormer who was police commissioner atle the
8:02 am
time told "48 hours" he believed her death was not related to the serial killer. he believes she ran into the marsh disoriented and drowned accidentally, but then why were her clothes found 1/4 mile away. >> that's explainable because she's hysterical and she's discarding her possessions as she moves along. >> reporter: but her clothes? >> her jeans could have come off from running in that environment. >> there isn't any type of reason why she would take off her jeans and leave them behind to run half naked into the swamp. >> reporter: so attorneyy john ray decided to test the police theory. >> we will now proceed into the marsh. if she had abandoned her shoes as she was walking barefoot through this, it would seem almost impossible for her without cutting up her feet very badly. >> reporter: the team comes to the place where shannan's remains were found, just 100 yards from a parkway. >> you can see the glistening of
8:03 am
some of the vehicles that have passed so for her to suddenly give up and die here wouldn't make much sense. >> reporter: he believes shannan gilbert was murdered and says the similarities between her death and the other women found in the area shouldn't be ignored. >> reporter: you think that shannan gilbert was killed by the serial killer? >> i believe that the evidence is extremely strong that shannan gilbert was killed by the same person. >> erin moriarity is with us now. is this credible evidence that perhaps she was killed by the same person? >> well, i think investigators disagree with him, but think about that. that means that there's more than one killer out there. the serial killer, with the person we know as the long island serial killer, targets women who are by themselves and in shannan gilbert's case, she had a driver. we know the three men that were with her. we've taken a close look at these three men who saw her in her last three hours. i think it's hard to believe she was killed by the same person
8:04 am
who was killed by these women. but that means there is another killer out there if in fact the family is right and she was mitt romney derd and there's a lot of evidence that suggests that. >> is it evidence that's moving things forward at this point? >> well, it's really hard to know. nobody's talking. what we do know about the long island serial killer is fascinating. this is someone who likes attention. this is a brazen person who's actually called the family of one of his victims making up to eight phone calls and taunting them and then disappearing not making any other phone calls. he may or may not be familiar with police procedures because he also knew to stay on the phone just so long or where to make phone calls so that he couldn't be traced. >> but they're not sure if that means he watches a lot of tv, right? >> absolutely. i think the three of us know a lot about police procedures because there's so many of these police procedural shows on television. >> what's common to all the killings? >> they're all online escorts. they're all vulnerable women.
8:05 am
and what's truly sad about this, i say in the past when you would go out you'd have a madam, someone who knew where you were going, they all did it online so no one knows where they went and what time they went. often they're never reported missing. it's really hard to track the killer. >> thank you. >> you can see erin's full reports on the long island serial killer on "48 hours" mystery tomorrow night at 10:00, 9 central, here on cbs. it is 8:05. here's a look at your local weather. as the temperatures rise,

tomorrow is the 40th anniversary of title nine. it's just a short clause in a law that requires equal opportunity for women in all aspects of education, including sports. it changed everything for female athletes. >> most women in sports today can't remember a time without title nine. i spoke with one of the laws early champions, tennis great, billie jean king. >> the whole purpose was about social change. >> reporter: in 1973 the nation
8:11 am
was captivated when 29-year-old billie jean king defeated tennis ace bobby in a match doved the battle of the sexes. a match met with more fanfare than any other in tennis history. for king, it wasn't about proving that she had the kills to beat a man on the court, it was about the future. >> reporter: why was that so important to you? because it was about much more than a match for you? >> oh, it was about social change. you have to remember, in 1973 when i played bobby or in 1972 when title was passed women could not get a credit card on their own without it being co-signed by a male to give you an example. i knew that my match against bobby riggs was about social change. >> reporter: the change had begun in washington one year earlier, 1972, with the passage of title nine. an amendment to the civil rights
8:12 am
act which granted women and girls equal access to federally funded education and related programs, but it's most commonly known as the bill that gave girls equal access to sports. at the time, only one in every 27 high school athletes was female. now as a result of title nine, two out of every five varsity athletes are girls. >> without title nine, women wouldn't have even been in the game. probably one of the most important pieces of legislation of the 20th century. >> we could see the golden goal, mr. president. >> reporter: one of its most visible milestones came in 1991 when the u.s. women's soccer team won the world cup. mia hamm was part of that legendary team that proved that women athletes could win. like her teammates, hamm credits much of her success to that landmark legislation. >> i wouldn't have had a career
8:13 am
without title nine. i think first and foremost i wouldn't have been able to play soccer or any sport that i liked in high school. >> reporter: yet despite the gains by athletes like hamm and the generation of girls who can't imagine a time when they couldn't play on the same field as the boys, hamm believes title nine's work is far from over. >> i would love to be in a state where we don't need it, but right now i think it is relevant. i think we still need to consider and create those opportunities for young girls. >> with sports as a microcosm of society, when we take care of both genders, the world is in a good place. when it leaves somebody out, that's not good. we still don't have as many opportunities. >> reporter: much more to do? >> a lot more to do. it will be never ending because you always want to cree pay the more opportunities for both boys and girls. let's say we're even, you still want to have more for both. >> reporter: that will keep you busy. >> for me? i'm not finished yet.
8:14 am
>> reporter: like you need one more thing to do. >> i love it. >> she told me this really great story. i asked her. she was so intent on this match about being about social change. do you think he understood what it meant to you at that point and what you were trying to do? she said no. but they became very good friends and throughout the years they talked about it a lot. i believe she said it was the night before he passed. he said, you know, we did a really good thing, didn't we? yes, we did. that's great. remarkable woman, as you know. >> indeed. a pioneer. >> absolutely. and she's still continuing. you know, that title still fits today. she's still very busy making sure that she is not done. >> exactly gentleman author stephen mansfield has written about the fate of barack obama and george w. bush. this morning it's mitt romney's turn. he'll tell you why the republican nominee is about the more mon niezing of america. more on "cbs this morning."

♪ i believe that god has a plan for all of us ♪ ♪ i believe that plan involves eating my own planet ♪ ♪ and i believe the president speaks directly to god ♪ ♪ i am a mormon and dang it the mormons just believe ♪ >> the book of mormen is a gigantic broadway hit. best selling author steven mansfield says, it is also one example of how americans are becoming more aware of the church of jesus christ of latter day saints. >> he writes about this in his new book, "the mormonizing of
8:19 am
america." stephen mansfield joins us now. welcome. how do you explain the growth? >> birth rates. really good strategies of evangelism. and community. today people want to belong before they believe. mormons give them that opportunity. they're about belonging, they're about oozing around people and drawing them into relationships and in a lonely fragmented society, that works. >> the misperception? >> about mormons? that they're all about the odysseys that everybody wants to talk about publicly, the undergarments and rituals and some of the other maybe more extreme views. in fact, if you asked a mormon, a mormon's going to say what's really important about mormonism is the restoration of priesthood authority. it is the idea the ancient priesthood has been restored that all men can be priests and literally they believes signs, wonders, prophecies happen at the hands of these people. >> are mormons offended when some in the political debate say they're not christians. >> that does offend them and it is going to continue to be offensive because really what's going on there is a bit of a
8:20 am
battle over the definition of what christian is. even an objective atheist looking at the traditional christian doctrine and mormon doctrine would say these two things aren't the same thing but they both continue to claim to be christian. it is about a battle for the name really. >> in a battle for the name because one plays better than another in american politics. >> yes. the other view is that you're going to be a cult. which is the other insulting word that's used of mormons. >> yes, the case has been made that, speaking specifically of mitt romney, maybe this is something he should play up, because mormons, if we're stereotyping here, great family, strong commitment, strong belief system, fantastic work ethic. aren't those all good qualities? >> required service. exactly. the problem is americans don't tend to know these religions really well. we don't teach them in schools. we're a little hesitant. there's a great deal about mormonism that should commend mitt romney. he's going to be radically committed to his wife as an eternal thing. he's going to be about strong families. he's probably going to be far more hesitant to lie than
8:21 am
another president perhaps after different faith simply because he believes this is determining his ultimate exultation. those are the positive things. then other things -- what about being baptized for the dead and how have the jews felt about that and how does mormonism shape maybe public policy regarding israel. there are controversies and those discussions may need to be had during the campaign season. >> how important is he within the church? >> well, some folks are trying to say, well, he's just lightly connected to the mormon church. no, no, no. he's a mormon bishop. >> what does that mean? >> it's several levels up from sort of the entry level preedhoopreed ho priesthood. he's not at generic level of all men being priests. he has had a leadership role that was about being essentially being clergy, being a pastor. he taught week to week. he assured doctrinal uniformity, he disciplined members. he was maybe something like a bishop in the anglican church, or maybe just a pastor of a mega
8:22 am
church perhaps at that level. that was the way he functioned regionally. >> you think he should be more outgoing about his mormonism? >> yes. and that's counter what his advisors are telling him. senior advisors are feeling like he overdid it in 2008 by drawing it back from. i'll have to say, that's a mistake. we're going to have a mormon moment. it is going to come in this campaign. something's going to happen. the poll is that -- i'm sure you've heard -- 20% of republicans won't vote for a mormon, 27% of democrats won't vote for a mormon. those numbers haven't changed since 1967. you simply are going to have a collision in this election between these two men and their faiths. somebody's going to bring it up and we're going to have to articulate it. >> they can start preparing by reading your book. >> i think they all should read the book. >> "the mormonizing of america." lucky for everyone, it is actually on sale now. stephen, nice to have you here.

8:31 am
who came up with the idea. jeff? >> charlie, good morning. seth grahame-smith is a prolific young writer and producer. we chatted about abraham lincoln, axe wielding, and alternate history. >> four score and seven years ago -- >> reporter: before abraham lincoln, vampire hunter was a movie, it was a "new york times" best seller. actually, widely praised by lincoln scholars for its blend of real history. >> that all men are created equally. >> and fantasy. >> we call this a completely ridiculous premise to start with. >> it is. it is. i think you would be crazy to not acknowledge that it is a ridiculous premise. abraham lincoln, to the best of my knowledge, did not in fact fight vampires. it's an absolutely sort of muscular, ridiculous bad ass
8:32 am
ride. >> the idea came from where? >> before she was the new hollywood it kid, seth grahame-smith was had a long list of no name hits. >> i'm considered an overnight success and i spent 11 years in a one bedroom apartment writing things nobody would read. >> reporter: his first hit came in 2009, "pride and prejudice and zom business" a mashup of the jane austin classic with cannibalism. this year it's "unholy night," the subversive casting of the three wise menace thieves. in between there was lincoln. >> for the people. >> i think that abraham lincoln, the real man, was in a lot of ways the only american super hero. i mean, it's the ultimate sort of american dream story. >> what's happening, mr. lincoln? what do you hate? >> no education. >> i hate that my mother was taken away. >> no education. no money.
8:33 am
no family name. and yet he's able to pull himself up and become not only the president of the united states but then you night the united states. >> 80 miles from here to gettysburg. >> reporter: he knew the film would not be a critical darling and it's been met with less than glowing reviews. but he says at least it's not boilerplate. >> the way i see it, whatever else it is, it's a huge summer movie that is, for a change, not the sequel, prequel, a remake based on a toy, video or a board game. that's where i come in and make my case, hey, let's do something strange. let's get back to doing cool genre films. >> reporter: his current genre, the outrageous historical re-creation. >> now we are engaged in a great civil war. >> reporter: is one he's energized. he doesn't want it to define him. >> you don't want to be known as the mash-up guy? >> no. i don't want to become a parody of myself.
8:34 am
if i'm writing "peter the great ape hunter" that would probably make a good book. >> reporter: grahame-smith freely acknowledges the pressure. >> look into my eyes. >> reporter: his first screen play fell flat even in 3-d. >> it largely didn't work. i guess financially and critically it was -- i'm proud of the movie, but you can't live and die with each thing, but you do feel it, you know, and my concern with lincoln is that, you know, maybe people don't quite know what to make of it just say from the title. if people really like it, great. if they don't, then you just move on and try to do better next time. >> reporter: now he has more than a dozen projects in development including producing the steven king classic "it." >> king to me is one of the most underrated writers of the 20th and 21st century because in many
8:35 am
ways he didn't get that respect. he didn't. he didn't and he still doesn't despite the fact that he's written 50 worldwide best sellers and he's among the world's most prolific and i think talented writers of our generation or time. i'm frankly not that good of a writer but i -- you know, i want to write the stories that i want to write. >> reporter: you've sold a lot of books. you've covered a lot of different ground and yet you say you're not a very good writer. >> for me, i have to think of myself like that because i tell people if you don't -- if you don't wince when you read something you wrote two years ago, then you've got a problem because it means you've stopped growing. >> reporter: that is certainly not the case with seth grahame-smith. >> i am disciplined. >> reporter: if anything, his ambition is expanding. >> first i was just in shock that i was invited to the party, you know? then you're happy that you're invited to the party, and then now i'm in the fasz where i'm like, okay, what am i going to do at the party. >> do you want to take over the party? >> yeah.
8:36 am
little bit. i mean, i'd be lying if i said no. >> sounds like a guy who knows who he is and knows what he wants to do but if he doesn't want to be a genre writer, what does he want be to be? >> he wants to cross into different gren res. he wants to direct, wink, wink. he said, listen, i want to have a long career, not a sexy career. he knows he's the it kid right now. he's trying to beat back some of those expectations and tamp down some of that energy. >> that kid has a very good business partner. >> he does. but these guys are smashing. they clearly have connections and they're clearly staying very, very busy right now. >> "it." i can't read steven king. i'm a scaredy cat. >> are you awful? >> yes. i remember my sister being obsessed with this book. that's a big deal. >> that's a huge deal.

and he hired me so i'm really happy. >> you took the notes well? >> yeah. i think i did it well. >> but you're still telling us that you saw it at the premiere. you were talking. it seems like there's still some intimidation. he's in your mind woody allen. >> every time i have an interaction with him it's a nerve racking experience. i watched a pbs documentary on him, i felt you've met the man but it still feels he's so iconic for me. it's hard for him to be just a person. >> the idea of filming in rome, he's gone to these european cities, paris now rome. >> right. he always says that that's where the money is. that's where he gets financing. but i think there is also something that inspires him about the cities. once he's there to create these different stories in his mind and they influence the film. >> and, in fact, this one is kind of an homage to great italian film makers.
8:42 am
>> it is. it's also -- he grew up loving those movies. he talked about that. he said that that's -- he wanted to photograph rome in a tribute to them. >> you even the way he shoots your schedules, you actually got to enjoy a little bit of rome. >> i know. >> it isn't bad when you get to do it. >> he doesn't shoot long days and italian crews do not like to work long days. we would have these kind of like leash surely lunches in the middle of the day where everyone would drink wine. >> did you shoot after that? >> then we'd go back to set. we were like, well, we just had a bunch of white wine. we'll keep going. >> those were the best scenes you've ever done. >> it was amazing, beautiful. i loved the city. >> tell us where you want your sort of acting career to go. what kinds of things do you want? >> i'd like to act in all different kinds of films. i love writers/directors. >> woody allen is the pinnacle of that. i hope i get to work with as many as possible. i would like to write and direct
